Moscovici and Stathakis have scheduled meeting in Brussels

Environment and Energy Minister George Stathakis on Wednesday had a meeting with European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici in Brussels to discuss issues linked to the third review of the Greek programme, the environment ministry announced.

According to the ministry, the meeting had been scheduled in advance and the main energy-sector issue linked to the third review was that of liberalising the electricity market, breaking up the monopoly of the state power provider. More specifically, this is linked to the auctions of up to 40 pct of Public Power Corporation’s (PPC) lignite and hydroelectric power production capacity.
